“The day will be most memorable in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”
So wrote John Adams on July 3, 1776
What a great day to celebrate independence!!! And the perfect setting to appreciate the uniqueness of our families!
Last night some of my friends and family went to see the fireworks. It was pretty neat to watch my daughter react to them. After first it was really amazing to Julianne and then came the loud crash, startled her. After some reassuring words she was ready to watch the rest of the show…that is as long as she was sitting with one of our friends sons.
They grow up so quick, and with another on the way I’m glad I can capture moments like these to look back at them for years to come!
